You’re entering a community – an innovative hub of talented professionals who are here to support your fitness and wellness journey. Between our two locations, there are over 70 employees that contribute to our multifaceted fitness family – and each of them have a story. In our Staff Spotlight, get to know the unique individuals that bring the sparkle to our gem of a gym. 

1. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you? 
I am a semi-pro dart player. Don’t believe it? Well, challenge me for a pint then! 

2. What is your go-to “healthy” snack or meal? What is your go-to “treat”?
My healthy snack is smoked salmon (wild caught) and arugula salad. Treat: Pho with everything in it, including tripe. 

3. What are your top 3 favorite exercises of the moment? 
Battle ropes, rock climbing, and Pilates (duh).

4. Describe your health and fitness philosophy in ONE WORD. Why that word?
Communication. One must communicate closely with the body in order to determine the proper exercises. Isn’t communication the key to any healthy relationship? Why not use it in your relationship with your body? 

5. How will clients feel after working with you? 
Exuberant and ready to spread the healthy vibes all over Austin!
